Having read the some of the other reviews I was expecting the worst when we booked this hotel to enable us to attend a party in the area. I was therefore very pleasantly surprised when we arrived and saw our room, which was spacious and clean albeit with rustic beams and some slightly dodgy wiring.
The staff were efficient but not effusive and let us check in early at 12noon without any problems.
The beauty of this hotel is its location, it actually has a nice secluded garden to the rear and the side of the property in which you can sit out in the sun at any time of day and which you wouldn't expect for a hotel this surrounded by residential properties. There is also a large car parking area to the front.
The bar staff double as the receptionist on an evening which means that they do tend to be rushing from one place to another but that being said they managed very well all things considered when faced with an unexpected influx of party guests.
The breakfast was adequate, although the waitress is really only there to offer you toast, like another reviewer it took me some time to work out where the tea and coffee facilities were.
All in all for £60/night including breakfast for a hotel that is close to the amenities of Eastcote and only a few minutes walk from a tube station that can take you straight into Central London on the Piccadilly line I was far more impressed than I expected. The hotel isn't the Ritz but then its not pretending to be and whilst I wouldn't necessarily rush back I also wouldn't hesitate to stay there again.
Room #4 has a nice view over the garden/deck area and a large bathroom however the shower (which is over the bath rather than a separate cubicle) whilst having powerful pressure did have difficulty staying at the same temperature for any length of time - I think this is more to do with old plumbing than the shower itself but much tinkering was necessary to avoid scalding or freezing water!
If you are wanting to eat in the area try the Sambuca restaurant about 4 minutes walk away - very friendly service and lovely food.
